Hi guys, and hope you’re having a great Wednesday!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t seem to find my routine from this past weekend’s festivities! There’s still laundry to do, rooms to clean… and did I tell you that Kyle and I went to the beach on Saturday? If you know me, you’ll know that I hardly ever go to the beach – at least to swim. Not to be so personal, but I really don’t like the sun that much, lol. What I mean is, I HATE getting tanned and especially sunburned. Being all day in the sun is not my cup of tea, although the beach is really beautiful to look at. And smell.
But for this little trip, we decided to wear the appropriate beach-wear, and got ourselves some bathing suits (I think the last time I owned one, it was baby pink :/, what does that tell you?) And when we finally got there and set up our blankets, guess how long we stayed? One whole hour. We put our things in the car and went for a long walk on a paved trail. Beautiful view, right? Now I know what to expect for next time.
Anyways, it got me thinking about how it’s important to have certain “go-to” items that you know will always work. (Side note, I’m not a fan of that word “go-to”. Is there another word I can use?) I talked a few blog posts ago about having a “resourceful” special occasion outfit. Well this dress today is my everyday/weekend/casual/fool-proof dress. I can dress it up or down, depending on the situation. It’s super easy to just throw on and go. It’s comfortable and versatile. Hits all of my checklist for a great staple item this summer!
I added the belt to create a more defined waist. It’s just a little loose on my top half, so belting it was my solution.
Have a great rest of your week!
